And still it snows

Cincinnati at long last gets enough snow to actually enjoy!! YEAH!! (I miss Iowa where this isn't a rare once-in-a-dozen-years occurence.)

I still thing you unjustly impugn Ohio's snowiness. Maybe you just remember there being more snow in Iowa because you were shorter then.

You go to Iowa in winter sometime and tell me. But then, you also get more snow up north of Dayton.

Okay, I'll weigh in on this...

You get more snow in Iowa than in Cincinnati, but it also often comes with 20 to 60 below wind chills. IOW, you can't enjoy it. So I think we miss our memories of the snow, which are of the highlights, not the day-to-day, winter-to-winter pain, er, I mean, reality. ;-)

That said, yes, I think the recent Cincy blizzard, which was actually enjoyable save for our canceled plans, does happen pretty near every winter or two in central Iowa. It's that one good snow that we fondly remember, and rightly so!

That no doubt plays a part! And I don't know how much snow you get north of Dayton. But I have a friend who grew up in Columbus who misses the snowy winters there. Her apt description of Cincy in the winter is "36 degrees and raining."

My opinion is that Ohio snow is probably somewhat moderate. We've only lived north of Dayton for 4 yrs and the south Dayton suburbs did get decent snow but not every year. Remember the picture of you and your sister as toddlers with the approx 1 ft tall snowman because that was all the snow there was. I'd say every 4 yrs we get a lot of snow. I grew up closer to where there was lake effect snow and going to Cincy for college I thought Cincy didn't have a decent winter either. That's just another mom's opinion.
